This is what we call living!
We’re currently touring the mid NSW coast line and we’ve been blown away by it’s beauty and charm. The people we’ve met, the locals and would you believe the many many holiday makers who also call the Gold Coast home.
No stress. Sun kissed, salt in our hair, hearts full and 2 very tired children by 1pm every day. That’s what holidays are all about right! It’s been wonderful. New friendships, new adventures, and a new place to explore every day.
Things don’t fulfil us. But we know too well in today’s society that they are used as a measure of success. The car you drive. The (mortgaged?!) house you live in. The clothes you wear. It’s all just stuff and at the end of the day, you can’t take it with you.
What we value now has changed a lot in 10 years. I don’t know whether it’s children that shift our perspective or just a stage of growth in our lives but we’ve very much on a simpler path these days.
We love this time of year. For us it’s all about recharging, reflecting on the year that was, and looking forward with renewed energy at what we want the coming year to be.
At the end of every year we start by writing a list:
..Everything we did. Think.. concerts we went to, holidays we took, special friends we caught up with.
..What we achieved in business. We helped our clients purchase 50 properties this year!! and on the flip side helped 20 of our clients sell their property for a premium.
...What we saved for. What we said NO to, and what we did in property, (bought, sold, renovated etc).
